I am pleasantly refreshed having read Ken Follett's Code to Zero. I found it exhilarating in terms of pace. Yet the characters, Elspeth, Billie, Anthony and Luke, among others, were developed to the point of getting me to cheer for the protagonist and demonize the antagonist.

The story surrounded a pair of couples from Harvard who became friends and cohorts during the space race between Russia and the US. Certain of the group participated in the KGB as spies selling missile and rocket secrets to the USSR while working for the US.

One of the group manages, after being medically striped of his memory, to avoid another catastrophe with the latest launch in the US.

There are mildly described romances and marriages of convenience peppered into the story line.

I recommend Ken Follett. I am looking forward to reading more by him in coming weeks.
